Join The American Film Institute (AFI) Silver Theatre and Cultural Center in Downtown Silver Spring for a film screening of VENUS.
At once hilarious and serious, smart and sassy, Eisha Marjara’s gender-shifting comedy is the witty tale of Sid, a transitioning woman whose life takes a surprising turn when a 14-year-old boy named Ralph arrives at her door with the surprising announcement that he is her son. Suddenly, Sid must ponder the consequences of this profound news and share it with her Indo-Canadian parents and with Daniel, the love of her life. Just when she thought transitioning was complicated, Sid quickly learns that she ain’t seen nothing yet!
VENUS is part of the Canada Now film series, taking place July 16–September 3 at AFI. The series presents a selection of new Canadian films, as well as some true Canadian classics. The full program schedule for the series can be found here.
